Sake or rice wine is important beverage to understand Japanese culture and it is produced almost all over Japan. Yes, even in Tokyo. On this tour, we will visit one sake brewery in Tokyo and witness the process of sake making. Once you step into the brewery, you catch the fresh, mellow fragrance of sake. After the tour in the brewery, let’s taste fresh sake and enjoy lunch afterwards.
- Meet the guide at Tokyo station at 10 am.
- Take a local train to the nearest station. During the about one hour ride, our guide will tell you the daily life in Tokyo.
- After walking from the station, you finally arrive at the brewery which was built more than 150 years ago. Enjoy the short lecture and tasting!
- Lunch is available at a restaurant operated by the brewery. Enjoy soba (buckwheat noodle) and other Japanese local cuisines.
- There is a sake shop beside the brewery and you can purchase your favorite bottle.
- Depart the brewery at around 1:30 pm and go back to Tokyo by local train.
